Notes/Commercial Description:
An entirely new creation from organic 2-row, organic Crystal 60 and Carafa III, a huskless black malt that gives this beer it’s black color with notes of coffee and chicory without any tannic bitterness. The hop additions are many and generous, featuring Apollo, Horizon, and Nugget, clocking the beer in at 70 IBU. Over 11 pounds per batch of Nugget hops are added directly to the fermenter yielding a resiny herbal and spicy aroma. A hybrid style for dark beer fans who love hops.

16 oz. pint glass on tap at the Hay Merchant in Houston

L: black not backlit; dark black-brown amber up to sunlight; good lacing off short head, then little lacing as you drink it down

S: dark hops ... burnt citrus, burnt barley; lots of sweetness in there but also a no-doubt burnt note

T: so burnt, has that same (512) pecan porter burnt-out-malt flavor that's so good because it sweetens out big time, only this black IPA obviously doesn't have any of the pecan flavor; a ton of hops, citrusy kind, with bitter bite up front; just a hint of pine; lots of chocolate malt as it warms up. honeslty, what a "black IPA" sounds like it should taste like

F: a bit slick (watery?) with lots of carbonation. not bad at all, not a world-class award winner.

O: awfully good with a great mix of hops and malt, I'd love to get this at home. i wouldn't travel to the ends of the Earth looking for it, but where available, it's VERY worth the try, especially if you like/are interested in the black IPA.
